Immunologic Memory:

• Immunologic memory helps conserve energy by preventing unnecessary proliferation of lymphocytes into effector cells.

Cells with Immunologic Memory:

• Both B and T cells have memory.

Activation-Induced Cell Death:

• Activated T-cells produce cytokines that adversely affect body tissues. So, these cells are killed by a process called activation-induced cell death (AICD).

Role of Memory cells:

• Memory cells hang out in specific tissues, returning to the tissue where they first encountered the antigen.

Immunity:

Natural/active:

• Recovery from infection.

Natural/passive:

• Placental transmission of IgG, colostrum.

Artificial/passive:

• Antiserum, antitoxin, etc.

Artificial/active:

• Live/inactive vaccines.
